I would like a difernt texture or tone so that the armor looks a bit more realistic. What i mean is that many goofy armors would look better if they weren’t so like shiny and reflective or had dark colors. The spartans can wear odd armor becuase said armor is packed with internal devices, software, and also needs to be arrow dynamic for wind when they run or free fall.
In addition i would like our emblems to be on our armor, as well as have skins we can put on our armor. 343 has the content, i wish they put it all together. Imagine a Halo game were you can unlock different gear and upgrades to actually put it on whatever helmet you want or whatever armor you want, and then put skins on your armor.
I like that idea.
Spartans in past game wore MJOLNIR armor that where scratched and dirty and it looked so much better.
GEN 2 MJOLNIR armors are just shiny and they stand out too much.
Armor made by Bungie were created with the "It's a military equipment and should be design to fit what military could really wear" in mind and not the "Look my helmet, I look like a unicorn" or "Mine's better, it has no visor or visible camera on it but I can see just fine"
In Halo Reach, the Gungnir Helmet had what looked like a camera on it to help the player understand how that helmet worked and why it worked.
I wish flashy and useless cosmetics like Fotus (even if some players like it) should just go and let good, realistic and convenient cosmetics that soldiers or Spartans could really wear on the field (like Halo CE to Reach armor or ODST armor)
PS: I know that, in Halo 3, there was the Hayabusa Armor set and that it's kind of flashy but it's also made with the "military purpose" in mind. (read the wiki page about it)
